What is a Trend Alert?

A team of futures studies researchers at KWR Watercycle Research Institute applies the SEPTED approach to systematically examine and report on trends and developments in the water sector. SEPTED stands for social, economic, political, technological, ecological, and demographic dimension of these trends. EWSI members have access to the results of this research via concise Trend Alerts on the website. The futures research team also participates in various networks such as the World Future Society and European Foresight Platform and attends conferences to signal and understand the most important and latest developments. The knowledge acquired through this research is used to program the themes for the think-tank sessions and select the best external experts to fuel the strategists of the water sector with new insights.
